Jammu: Accusing the BJP of failing to carry forward the development agenda in the country, All India Congress Committee (AICC) secretary Sudhir Sharma Monday said the saffron party was banking on mere sloganeering to win the upcoming elections.
Speaking at a meeting in the party headquarters here, Sharma said,”Those (BJP) trying to undermine the Congress are banking on mere sloganeering. They have failed to carry on the path of development as was left by the UPA.”
The former minister in the Himachal Pradesh government claimed that Congress’ history was embellished with the sacrifices of people during which the country developed with better infrastructure, educational institutes, hospitals, industries, public sector units and new-age agriculture.
Sharma told party members that the time has come to prepare for general elections. “A movement should be launched to publicise the party’s programmes and policies among the public, he said.
He said the Congress will win majority of urban local bodies (ULB) polls as the people are fed up with “false promises”.
“Participation of hundreds of independent candidates indicates that the people have lost faith in the BJP and they want change in the system which only the Congress can provide,” he said.
